Welcome Protein Formula for Nails
Finally, we have the nail treatment product range to rival the gap left in the market by nailtiques departure in the summer of 2019. We are excited to be stocking Protein Formula for Nails at Michelle’s Skin & Beauty. This is a range that aims to get as close to the nailtiques protein formulas as possible. A key ingredient that can no longer be included now is formaldehyde due to updated EU regulations. All Protein Formulas are VEGAN and CRUELTY-FREE
Protein Formula for Nails 1, Maintain
Maintain. Nails are normal or have been through treatment and need maintenance and nourishment. Nails are generally in good health but need balance and maintenance to keep length and strength. Healthy nails are recognised by good flexibility, healthy pinkish colour and a light sheen to the nail surface. This is the type of nails we should be aiming for. These nails require the correct balance of conditioners and protein to maintain the health of the nail.
With added AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) and Hexanol (plant keratin). AHA’s provide a dose of natural moisture to the nail. Hexanol is a natural and sustainable element derived from plants, it promotes growth and flexibility in the nail. Aim to get all nails onto Protein Formula 1.
Protein Formula for Nails 2, Grow
Grow. Nails are soft, thin and peel on the free edge and do not grow. If you have oily skin or hair then your nail type will generally be the same. Nails need targeted support to give strength. This type of nail is recognised by peeling layers particularly at the free edge and can feel thin to touch. This type of nail splits easily and struggles to maintain any length.
With added Biotin and PHA’s (Poly Hydroxy Acid). Biotin is a B vitamin, it helps strengthen brittle nails. PHA’s provide a dose of natural moisture to the nail. In addition the concentrated blend of AHA’s and Panthenol will help the nail structure become denser, as it helps to rebuild links between damaged keratin fibres. Aim to get all nails onto Protein Formula 1 over time.
Protein Formula for Nails 3, Hydrate
Hydrate. Nails are hard, dry and flaky. They snap and break at a low point in the nail plate. If you have dry skin and dry hair your nail type will generally be the same. Nails need a surge of moisture and hydration. Strong, dehydrated and occasionally ridged, these nails snap easily due to lack of moisture, they tend to break lower down the free edge and often at the side wall, they can often look flaky and lose their healthy pink colour.
With added Glycerin and Probiotic. Glycerin acts as a nail hardener and increases the water content in the nail. Complex Probiotics help to preserve the natural microflora of the nails. The best formula for dealing with vertical and horizontal splits, using silk or micropore for support. Aim to get all nails onto Protein Formula 1 over time.
Protein Formula for Nails 4, Strengthen
Strengthen. Nails are extremely damaged and sensitive due to the use of Gel and Acrylic applications, poor health or everyday chores/wear and tear. Nails can be badly damaged or in poor condition especially following incorrect artificial nail application or removal. Nails may have built up sensitivity due to medication, poor health or the demands of life. These nails need strengthening and conditioning. Nails need the ultimate and powerful blend of strengthening ingredients.
With added Panthenol Pro-Vitamin B5 and AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids). Panthenol Pro Vitamin B5 is a humectant – it has the ability to pull moisture into the nail plate from the environment to aid flexibility and growth. AHA’s provide a dose of natural moisture to the nail. In addition the concentrated blend of AHA’s and Panthenol will help the nail structure become denser, as it helps to rebuild links between damaged keratin fibres. Aim to get all nails onto Protein Formula 1 over time.
For best results always use a nail oil, creme or balm to nourish and condition your nails and cuticles such as our Yonka hand cream.
All Protein Formula products can be used on bare nails or over other treatment products, they will still get through, especially with breathable formulations (PF 2, 3 & 4 are breathable). Use as many times a day as you can, and aim for 2-4 times every day for best results.
Each of the Protein Formulas aims to actively treat issues in the nails meaning that nails will move from troublesome to normal over time. When you notice an improvement in the condition it is best to then maintain the nails with Protein Formula 1 and discontinue the previous Formula as you may over-treat/over-process the nails and create other issues.
